There is not much to do in Sarande however we had a pleasant afternoon at the beach and using in a bar along the beach front. There are a lot of beggars especially children so that is difficult to see. Food and drink is very cheap

Next stop was Sarande, Albania. I was a bit nervous about this port after reading the reviews. We were tendered in, which was the easiest tender we have ever had, although we waited til the main rush was past. When you get off the tender, you are met by numerous taxi drivers advertising their trips to the blue eye national park etc. Walking towards the beach is quite depressing. It’s really run down. There are lots of beggars, but they don’t pester you. Many have babies or very young children. Once you get down to the beach, it’s a fairly standard beach front, with stalls selling tat, and restaurants, cafes and bars. It’s very cheap for food and drink. You can’t buy Albanian currency outside of Albania, but they accept euros too. Unless you’ve organised an excursion, there’s not much to do other than the beach. The beach is very stoney, but apparently there are sandy beaches in neighbouring villages. This would be a great beach stop for children though, there are inflatables and diving platforms which looked like great fun! Read Less

Albanian Riviera And Its Villages This 6-hour tour is a pleasant scenic drive through the Albanian countryside and along the coast. There is a short stop at the natural spring and waterfall at Borsh. Food and drink are available at the local shops. The next stop is at Porto Palermo Castle. It has an interesting history and spectacular views. To get to the castle is a ¾ mile round-trip walk over rugged stones and loose gravel, up and down the hill. The final stop at Himare was simply an opportunity to buy a meal at a local restaurant. There are a few small shops to browse, but not much else to do here. The stops on this excursion were pleasant, but the scenic drive along the coast was equally enjoyable. Read Less

This tour was the highlight of our visit to Albania! Our guide took us on a walking tour of Sarande and then it was off to the park. The ride to the Blue Eye National Park through the countryside was pleasant. The Blue Eye was beautiful, we enjoyed walking through the park, learning the history of the dragon, and putting our feet in the spring water. The views from Lekuresi Castle were magnificent.

We saw the blue eye springs it was not very much for most people and if you are really looking forward to a great experience I would not choose this one. I liked the quaintness of the area but most people did not.

Walked the promenade. A little concerned about safety from what we heard from others. For us all was okay for us. It was a very hot day. We would go back.
